I need a jump-start. Who's up for an unlikely collab?

Skip to the bottom

  • @sapient  Feb 12

    I've just spent an incredibly rewarding week at Skyhammer Studio recording the new Abomnium album.
    I'm thinking that February perhaps wasn't the best month to do it. I feel creatively drained and can't contemplate writing new songs right now. But I can't fail at FAWM...!
    If you fancy helping me out with a mad idea for a collab, then gimme a shout. Frankly the more left-field (for me, that is, ie not death or black metal. Which I guess leaves things rather wide open!) the better. I look forward to hearing from you! (Oh god... I've just sent an open cry for help to the FAWMily... What have I done!?!)

  • @heuristicsinc  Feb 12

    I'd do something with you. I'm electronic, and you do guitars?

  • @headfirstonly  Feb 12

    Probably can't describe the prospect as unlikely but I'm always up for another collab if you want - just give me a shout.

  • @sapient  Feb 12

    @heuristicsinc and @headfirstonly - bless you both for stepping up! I'll be in touch...

  • @metalfoot  Feb 12

    How left field are we talking? Because I've been doing mostly kids' music... that might be a bridge too far...

  • @sapient  Feb 13

    @metalfoot - I'm game. Bring it on! 😁

  • @donna  Feb 13

    @sapient, if lyrics are on your wish list, here's one in the fantasy-fairytale vein, so pretty left-field. (The only thing right-field about it is that it concerns a wicked-witch queen. πŸ˜‰)

  • @metalfoot  Feb 13

    Well, @sapient, there's always my Helga the FAWM Duck lyric, sitting there lonely, needing music... LOL

    (And if you don't think it'll work, I'll write something for you)

  • @sapient  Feb 13

    Thanks, @donna! I'm not sure I'm yet up for giving those epic lyrics the treatment they deserve... 😏

    @metalfoot - That's a ridiculous idea. I'm seriously tempted πŸ˜‰

  • @mikeskliar  Feb 13

    @sapient - so it's rare for me to have a lyrics-only thing, but I have this lyrics only thing called 'eccentric' (was a skirmish title) and it'd be quite wild to have you set it to music, if you wanted..

  • @sapient  Feb 13

    Ooo, yes, @mikeskliar, they do look rather unlike the sort of thing I've ever done! Let me see what happens... πŸ˜€

  • @writeandwrong  Feb 13

    @sapient I wrote a lyric that won't be used outside of FAWM. As a rule, I don't write mushy lyrics lol so if you really wanna do something unlikely, try http://fawm.org/songs/69414/. Let me know if you are up to something doubly unlikely lol (Can turn it into an unlikely genre, too hehe)

  • @ajna1960  Feb 13

    @sapient
    You sir, are on my dream collab list... Please may I write some lyrics especially suited to yourself ?
    Yours truly etc and slΓ‘inte

  • @donna  Feb 14

    Ahhhhh…You want REALLY left-field. πŸ˜‰ How about a corny blues tune?

    Keep or sweep. πŸ˜‰

  • @colgoo  Feb 14

    We would definitely be an unlikely pair, but I'm up for lyrics (and vocals, if needed) if you give me a general direction for where you'd like to be heading.

  • @sapient  Feb 17

    Whoo-hoo! I'm off and rolling!!!

    Thanks so much to @metalfoot (http://fawm.org/songs/69010/) and @heuristicsinc (http://fawm.org/songs/71658/) for letting me play 😁

    Next up, @mikeskliar, I'd really like to see why I can do with your lyrics... I think they deserve something a little different than my usual assault, which will be a lovely challenge!

  • @mikeskliar  Feb 17

    @sapient - go for it! can't wait to hear!!

  • @ajna1960  Feb 17

    pokes Lord @sapient (nicely of course) πŸ˜€

  • @michaelepic Feb 17

    Would you like to take a shot at dance pop? I've got endlessly catchy lyrical sets and some pretty funny ideas that you might think are pretty sweet!

  • @sapient  Feb 17

    @michaelepic - given that I wouldn't have the first clue what I'm doing, it sounds like an excellent basis for a collaboration!
    (Now a bit worried about over-committing...)

  • @michaelepic Feb 18

    @sapient - I thought that might get your creative juices flowing. Venturing in to a genre you never thought you might! haha but if you don't have time, no biggie but dude...you're awesome, you know you're awesome and your talent paired with my lyrics and ideas...we could create something epic. 😁 holler at me if you're inclined!

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 18

    Here are a couple of different options if you would be interested

  • @pluto Feb 27

    if you want a harp added to a future track call me. i like putting the harp in new context. so not the classic bluesharpstyle is what i prefer. if you're interested check www.transmissionfromearth.ch

  • @tiller2  Feb 27

    Hey, on the off-chance... I wrote a darned-good lyric, "They Promised Us Space Planes," for a collab that never came to fruition, and you might find it inspiring. Thanks. http://fawm.org/songs/68096/
